    We are staying at the Wilderness Lodge for Christmas this year! We are considering upgrading to a 1 bedroom villa for our family of 5. My concern is the walking distance from the villas to the restaurants & boat launch. Our kids are 5, 4, & 1. Any

    Hi Loveisa! We absolutely LOVE Disney's Wilderness Lodge'll be blown away by the beautiful and rustic atmosphere. We spent a few days there during Thanksgiving break last year and it was AMAZING! The decorations were breathtaking and our family photo in front of the magnificent Christmas tree was our holiday card for family and friends.

    Don't worry, the Disney Vacation Club villas are not far at all. Just a short stroll away from the main building, so you'll still be close to everything!

    For my children nothing beat the water slide at the pool and the 24-hour playground, but we also enjoyed many of the other fun recreational activities like watching a movie under the stars and making s'mores at Chip 'n Dale's Campfire Sing-a-long at the Fort Wilderness Campground area. There's also watercraft and bike rentals, a high-tech game room, fishing and the Cub's Den, a supervised activity center for kids to hang out and have fun. 

    When it was time to for rides and attractions we enjoyed the short water-taxi ride to Magic Kingdom Park. More than anything you'll love how serenity at Disney's Wilderness's MAGICAL!

    Wishing you a magical and memorable Disney Vacation!
